    I worked with patty for few years. Love her very much. She always had my back, always telling me stories, making me laugh, always a kind word to anyone she met. She will be missed by many. One day we were in her car and she wanted me to listen to a song that she did believe in and to this day the sparrow means a lot to me. Love her and will pray for her. She will be so missed!

    Tom – Alice – Roger,
    Very sorry to hear of your loss. She and all of her family were wonderful neighbors back in the early ’60s of extreme Eastern Clinton County. All of us remember when our mom was in the hospital for minor surgery, and Mrs. Selke brought us a wonderful meal of beef, potatoes, carrots, onions and gravy in one of those electric frying pans. From that day forward, what most people call “pot roast” we called “Patty Stew” in her honor.
    Her kindness is remembered by all who knew her.
    Also sorry for how late this condolence is.
